Catherine and Pavlovsk Palaces and the Parks with a private guide


This private tour is designed for up to 3 travellers, which is the capacity of my Volvo XC-60 car. Please ask for details in case of larger group! Definitely I would be able to get a van or a bus for you.
During the tour you would get the possibility to visit 2 former summer residences of Russian Tzars which had been surely created to astound the visitors with the grandeur and luxury. But the Residences are absolutely different as in Catherine Palace whoever had been successful in the throne of the Russian Empire found it necessary to make alterations into the design of the previous rulers while Pavlovsk Palace was a nest and the family home of the members of the Russian Emperor Paul. Russian history is full of intrigues, tragedies and enigmas so the both Residences had witnessed many of them.
I would be happy to share the stories with you! Besides as you might know the worldwide famous Amber Room is located in Catherine Palace! It is possible to get a Russian cuisine tasting nearby.
